My Animals Babybasics by Xavier Deneux

Black. White. Bright and just right for baby!Experts and parents know that books that are high-contrast and hands-on are best for engaging babies' attention. Babies just can't resist running their hands across the intriguing surface of My Animals black-and-white cover--they'll need to know what comes next!Inside the book, peek-a-boo holes allow toddlers to grab and turn each page themselves. And when they do--they'll get a new peek-a-boo surprise!With words to name each animal and small splashes of other colours, this clever combo of style, smarts, and surprises is perfect for baby--and for baby shower.
